Dabo Swinney promised to host a pizza party if his team got into the college football playoffs. They made it, and Swinney had tens of thousands of people over on Sunday — at the stadium.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm David Greene. You ever throw a pizza party...

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Hey, is there more pepperoni over there?

GREENE: And you realize you didn't order enough pies?

INSKEEP: Or maybe mushroom if you don't have pepperoni.

GREENE: I'm so sorry, Steve. Maybe next time you should go to Dabo Swinney's house. He's Clemson's football coach. And he promised to host a pizza party if his team got into the College Football Playoffs. They made it, and Sweeney had 20,000 people over yesterday - well, over at the stadium - hope he had coupons for the 3,000 pizzas he had to order. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
